U-turn on promise; FEEDBACK.

U-turn on promise PROMISES to the electorate for a referendum in 2017 enabled the Conservatives to assure themselves of a convincing victory in the recent General Election, or so we're told by their press puppets in London and beyond.

Well done to UKIP for getting four million votes and just one MP. Life just ain't fair is it? And congratulations too to the SNP who proved the best way to get seats is to scare the English voters and hint at a coalition with the Labour party.

But seriously folks, now that all the shouting, backslapping and "yahboo sucks to you" fades into a distant memory, we all hope the Tory rhetoric re the referendum is worth more than its promise to those expats who fought and died in order that we could all live in a free Europe, safe from Nazi tyranny and its despotic principles.

Sadly, the survivors of that terrible war have now learned that their sacrifices were all in vain, following David Cameron's reneging on a promise he made earlier that all expats would be able to vote in the in/out referendum. And, if he can do that, what else, what other promises will the Tories renege on? Fred Tidball Bradley
